Call Levy

In some states, including California, a “call levy” is a formal summons for the taxpayer to appear in court on or before a specified date. A summons, in the legal lexicon, is simply a “demand.” It is used to give the defendant a specified time frame in which he/she must either pay the money or face lawsuit. In other states, such as Pennsylvania, a “summons” is also a complaint that asks the defendant to come to court on or before a specific date. The Pennsylvania State Supreme Court has held that a summons to appear can be sufficient to have the taxpayer face civil and criminal proceeding. You may be scratching your head trying to figure out what a “summons” or” summons for appearance” means. In any case, a “summons” is a formal written notification from a judge or magistrate that provides specific information about the person to be summoned (e.g., name, address, etc.). It does not include a transcript of the court proceedings. Similarly, a “summons for investigation” is a document from a Magisterial Court summoning the taxpayer to appear before a judge to answer questions regarding his/her liabilities.

So, let’s say that a former revenue officer has summoned you to appear in front of a Magisterial Court. What exactly do you do then? First, you may want to call the tax office that issued the summons. If you are unable to reach a supervisor, the Internal Revenue Service will be able to give you the same information. Note: The Internal Revenue Service is not going to tell you who to call in this situation because we strongly recommend that you avoid contacting the IRS itself when dealing with tax problems. You will also want to dial the local police department. Remember: The Internal Revenue Service cannot legally issue a” summons for investigation” or a “summons for examination” from any state court. Also, we strongly recommend that you keep in mind that you are not obligated to answer any of the questions that the former revenue officer asks you. If you call the police, and they ask you to stop your car or come outside, call them back explaining that the Internal Revenue Service has advised you against contacting them, or telling them that you are not required to answer any of the questions.

Next, call the debt collection agency that issued the original levy or call us. Note: If you are not sure where you received the summons, the debt collection agency can give you the address (and the last name) of the lien holder. If you can verify the lien holder’s name online, you may be able to remove it from the summons. Note: If you try to contact the debt collection agency after the levy has been executed, they can only respond if you can show proof of the identity of the person that was summoned. There are many reasons to hire a professional tax resolution firm such as IRS Enrolled Agent, IRS Resolution or a tax resolution company to help people resolve their problems with the Internal Revenue Service. However, there are also some very good reasons for not calling a levy. In the future, we strongly recommend that you contact the Internal Revenue Service and politely ask them for all of the information that they requested on your behalf, including the summons. Also, if you are innocent, call the IRS Enrolled Agent, IRS Resolution, or a tax attorney and discuss your case, and/or gather information that will help people like you to get out of debt.
